Wendy's Wedding

Wendy's wedding was absolutely gorgeous! I am so happy for her. The groom did not even look nervous, he just looked really really happy. The reception was held at a beautiful home out Pike Road. The food was incredible! It was so good to see some of my friends that I have not seen in a while. Congratulations Wendy!

Bunco Girls Night Out

We had girls night out on Friday. We wish more of our BUNCO group was able to come. We missed them!!! We ate dinner at Logans and then went to Down the Street Cafe to listen to a band. Byne's Uncle plays in a band - so we went to listen to them ( that is how Byne and Brandon wormed their way into Girls Night Out). The food at Logans was great. The band was awesome. We had a great time!!

Dalton and Allie

We went ice skating today with Emilie and Jan. I did not realize how good Dalton was at ice skating! He helped Allie the whole time we were there. He was a lifesaver because the rest of us had to hug the wall!! Mark would not even put ice skates on (scaredy cat)!

Dalton has been volunteering at the YMCA the past couple of weeks. I am so proud of him - he seems to have a talent and love for working with children. It is somewhat unexpected, because patience has never been one of his strengths. I believe God gifts some people the talent of working with children. It looks like he may have been given that special gift! I am just so proud that he is taking time out for others!

Christmas 2007

I love Christmas time! My favorite part is when the whole family gets together to eat. The food is so good and we always have such a great time. This year we got together with Maw Maw and family on Christmas Eve and with my family on the Sunday before Christmas. We are excited that Mark is off work until Thursday. We will get to spend tons of time together!! We have a family tradition of going to the movies on Christmas Day. We take turns picking which movie to go see - this year it is Mark's turn. That probably means an action movie - I can handle it - marriage is give and take! We are watching a girly movie tonight (Christmas Eve)! Merry Christmas to all of our friends and family. We love and appreciate you!! We are blessed beyond measure!

Kitten Battle

We have been fighting with Harmony since Thanksgiving because she loves to climb our Christmas tree. She has already broken several ornaments. I am surprised our entire tree has not fallen over. We have tried every thing to keep her out of the tree - and nothing seems to work. Look how high she got in the picture. Mark and Lakyn are constantly pulling her out of the tree. They both love Harmony, and I love Mark and Lakyn - That is the only reason she is still in the house! Wish me luck making it until Christmas day!

Our Gingerbread Creation

Lakyn and her creation

Lakyn and I had great fun making our gingerbread house. The kit was at Walmart. We, of course, had to also buy additional candy. We didn't use half of what we bought. She had the most fun workiing on this house. We literally spent over an hour decorating it. I am dying to eat a piece, just to see what it tastes like - but she refuses to let me. I bet Byne, Mark and Dalton tear into it soon when she is not watching. They are sneaky like that. You can not leave food sitting around our house too long!!!
